    Larry Fessenden & Graham Reznick’s “UNTIL DAWN” Video Game Announces Release Date, Cast

    While survival horror has long dominated the video game landscape, not many horror games have been able to capture the essence of genre cinema, instead wielding in splattery combat or repetitive puzzle challenges. And the horror games that have come close, such as the WALKING DEAD episodes vial Telltale, don’t necessarily carry the realistic graphics or scope that the titans of survival horror emphatically showcase. However, it seems that there’s one horror video game hitting Playstation 4 later this year that looks like the closest thing to an interactive horror film to date, and it’s not much surprise that it comes from the twisted minds of Glass Eye Pix’s Larry Fessenden and Graham Reznick: UNTIL DAWN!

    Stanley Film Festival: Director Adam Egypt Mortimer on “SOME KIND OF HATE” and “BALLISTIC”

    After having experienced the gripping and gruesome neo-slasher SOME KIND OF HATE firsthand, this writer was excited to hear that the film was acquired so soon after it’s world premiere at the Stanley Film Festival. Yet the news wasn’t exactly the most surprising update either; the film showed clear, confident direction from a director who clearly understands (and subverts) the cinematic language of horror. And on the eve of the film’s premiere and the release of his absolutely bonkers graphic novel, BALLISTIC, FANGORIA sat down with Mortimer in the notoriously Stanley Hotel to talk about his disturbing directorial debut and touched upon his work both on screen and on the page…

    FANGO Flashback: “TALES FROM BEYOND THE PALE, SEASON 1″

    For all of the people in the world who follow each little step the technological world takes, especially in the way of consuming media, it’s no surprise that others clamor for a taste of the old and antiquated. Whether it be the resurgence of vinyl, the cult of VHS swapping or the renewed interest in the comic book industry, there’s definitive proof that there are people out there who will never be satiated by the offerings of the digital era. However, there does seem to be new middle ground in the form of podcasts, which offer old school radio aesthetics via a modern on-demand digital platform. And with the popularization of podcasts in the past several years, the format has seen new, innovative experiments to bring unique experiences other than the standard talk radio program.

    Stream to Scream: “HELLRAISER V: INFERNO”

    For a franchise nine films deep, it’s surprising that there are so few universally beloved HELLRAISER films. Aside from the undeniably frightening original and, arguably, the nightmarish fever dream of HELLBOUND: HELLRAISER II, each HELLRAISER film has a critically polarizing stance among fright fans, especially once the series’ transparent status of “existing scripts refashioned for HELLRAISER” comes into play. However, the first sequel to undergo said process is also one of the strongest of the HELLRAISER sequels, trading in a big-screen budget for a genuinely creepy and stylish affair that introduced the world to SINISTER/EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE director Scott Derrickson.

    “TWIN PEAKS” Revival Doubles Episode Order, Badalamenti to Return

    The journey from announcement to conception for Showtime’s TWIN PEAKS revival has been nearly as surreal and backwards as the series itself, with David Lynch’s exit and subsequent return being the the cherry on top. But now, it finally seems that everything is falling into place, and according to reliable fan site WELCOME TO TWIN PEAKS, the series will be back in a bigger way than any fan could have imagined as Sherilyn Fenn and Sheryl Lee made a few excellent announcements during the Twin Peaks’ panel at Seattle’s Crypticon.

    “SALEM: Season 2, Episode 8″ (TV Review)

    After Joe Dante’s contemplative, character-building episode last week, SALEM switches gears in the best way possible with it’s eighth episode “Dead Birds”, offering one of the most wicked episodes so far this season. Under the incredibly game and skilled direction of Alex Kalymnios, the script from Joe Menosky and Adam Simon offers an episode that oozes sex, gore, surrealism and legitimately powerful drama, all the while firmly wiping the cloud of mystery from our eyes as per the allegiances and strategies of the witch war. And in doing so, SALEM also confidently opens the audience to the world around our characters, diving into the past of Increase Mather as well as the reality around the fantasy that’s so often indulged in the series.

    Exclusive First Still, Comments: “BELLFLOWER” Producers’ Insane Action Follow-Up, “CHUCK HANK AND THE SAN DIEGO TWINS”

    For this writer, there are few films that were as unique, engrossing and breathtaking as Evan Glodell’s BELLFLOWER, an experimental love story with a truly independent aesthetic and taste for cinematic mayhem. After the film’s release, a close eye was kept on what would be next for Glodell and his Coatwolf production team. Sure enough, their next project was something even more suited for this writer’s sensibilities: CHUCK HANK AND THE SAN DIEGO TWINS, a love letter to side-scrolling video games and the anarchy-laden spirit of crazy ‘80s action filmmaking.

  • The Return of the Dragon: The Cinematic Appetizers for “HANNIBAL” Season Three

    With the recent announcement that the one and only Bryan Fuller, who is the mastermind of NBC’s HANNIBAL, will serve as FANGORIA’s first ever Special Guest Editor in FANGORIA #343, the fine young cannibals here at FANGORIA have been beaming with eerie excitement. Yet for those who can’t wait for their Fuller fix next month, the third season of HANNIBAL is a mere two weeks from debuting, picking up from the bloody and brutal cliffhanger that left many of our heroes at the wrong end of Dr. Lecter’s blade. And while perhaps a Hannibal Lecter marathon leading up to the premiere might work for some of the hungrier horror fans out there, this writer feels that taste is a bit… familiar. So in light of that, FANGORIA has assembled some welcome cinematic appetizers for those chomping at the bit for their third serving of HANNIBAL…
